11 Sparkling Water Mocktails to Make You Feel Extra Summer-y

As you may have known, we used to have a La Croix fridge in the garage studio. Yes, you read that right: a whole fridge. A fridge, whose sole purpose in this world was to house, protect, and chill precious cans of lime and grapefruit bliss.

Okay, we’re not going to continue to go overboard here, but as you can tell from our ode to sparkling water, we love it. We all know how delicious sparkling water is, and how it is a great alternative to soda and sugar-laden drinks. And since summer is upon us, it’s time to mix it up a bit—literally (but not so much where you lose the bubbles). So, let’s raise a glass to summer and sparkling water. Bottom’s up!

Strawberry Basil Soda
Can’t have a roundup of mocktails without a strawberry mocktail, right? This recipe calls for a pound of strawberries, lemon, basil leaves, and sugar (although we recommend trying simple syrup). (via The Kitchn)

Rosemary Blueberry Smash
ARGH ROSEMARY BLUEBERRY SMASH. Did anyone else read it as that? I think every time I hear “smash,” I think of Super Smash Brothers or something, but this drink is a lot More delicate than that (all of the mommas that have little ruffians are thanking the good Lord right now). Gather a good amount of blueberries—which, sidebar, are good for your gut!— Rosemary, honey, and of course, sparkling water. (via Against All Grain)

Miami Mama Mocktail
This one is also for the ride-or-die La Croix sippers, this time, tapping into the Cran-Raspberry offering. Just add lemon juice and cranberry juice cocktail and drink up. (via La Croix)

Golden Tumeric Sparkles A little out of the box, but tumeric is loaded with a long list of health beneifts. If you didn’t know it, now ya know. Aside from the mocktail’s namesake, this mocktail calls for ginger (also a posterchild for wonder-working spices), lemon, honey, and cayenne pepper. (via The Holistic Ingredient)

PiñaCroixlada
So, this isn’t necessarily a recipe for the mocktail, but the drink is still good without the spike (and if you wanted to leave it in there, no shame in your game). This glass is filled with pineapple juice, coconut La Croix, and light rum (if that tickles your fancy). (via Gizmodo)
